Women's Soccer falls at home against Cleary

(Ann Arbor, MI) The Concordia Women's Soccer team hosted Cleary University Wednesday afternoon for a WHAC contest. While the first half was closely contested, the Cougars took advantage of a pair of goals three minutes apart from each other to earn the win.



Isabel Stropich had a look at goal for the Cardinals in the fourth minute of play that was saved by the Cougars.


The Cleary Cougars were able to create several chances in the beginning of the first half, but Hayley Jacobson was able to prevent their attempts in goal.


Katelyn Aiello had a look in front of the net 31 minutes into the first half that was saved by the Cleary keeper for another Cardinal attacking opportunity.



In the second half Danielle Bracken worked her way down the left side and served a low pass to Megan Starkey who had a shot go off the goalie and then the cross bar. Later in the half Bracken sent in a similar cross that also fell to Starkey who missed wide.


Shortly after that play, Elena Strauss was able to connect with Felicia Mosley for a Cougar goal. Three minutes later Sophia Coelho received a pass on the right side and was able to beat Jacobson to make it a two-goal advantage for the Cougars.


Katelyn Aiello had a free kick from 28 yards out that she narrowly missed the upper right corner with. Shortly after, Aaliyah McIntosh won a free kick for the Cardinals just outside of the box that Hazel Wright took. Wright's shot went into the wall set up in front of her.


The Cardinals had one more chance in front of the net when Aaliyah McIntosh was able to keep the ball away from the Cougar keeper, but the Cardinals were unable to get it past the Cleary defense.



Next up for the Cardinals is a home match against Lawrence Tech on Sunday, October 9th. It will be a Breast Cancer Awareness game for the team with kickoff set for 5:00 on Ferry Field at Cardinal Stadium.
